Today the Maryland Senate gave final approval to medical marijuana by academic centers across the state. Passage of this bill represents a small step in our states progress toward a better society. The Young Democrats of Maryland endorsed passage of medical marijuana in our statewide platform at the 2012 Statewide Convention. Today we applaud passage by the General Assembly and look forward to the bill being signed into law by Governor Martin O’Malley.
